Baked Buffalo Shrimp

            This recipe is listed under appetizers, however, I would think that these would also make a great main course. Obviously, you would have to double the batch. Anyways, sports games are happening year round which would make these the perfect appetizer to have for a small group or a crowd. There is just enough heat to make these perfect. I could personally eat a full platter to myself.

            With parties happening, and get togethers once sports are done for a few weeks and the kids having friends over, I end up making these quite often. There are times we are invited out for a card night or game night at our friends and I will bring a platter of these delicious Buffalo Shrimp. They are a healthy snack to share and most people fall in love with them right away.

Be sure that your shrimp are cooked until they are crispy. They will not taste good if they have not crisped up yet. When you take your shrimp out of the oven it should be a delicious looking golden brown color. You can test to see if they are crispy. Otherwise I suggest flipping the shrimp halfway through the cooking cycle.

Be sure that you choose a shrimp that has had the tail removed already. It is unappetizing to not only bite into a shrimp tail, but also to watch others have to remove it from their mouth. Remember also, it is perfectly okay if you choose to fry the shrimp instead of baking it. I realize that some people like the taste of the fried foods, and I actually envy them. I also made a promise to cut back on the fats in my foods, you know the resolution we all make? Well, yes, I made that resolution again this year.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Could I fry these instead of baking?

If you prefer the taste of fried instead of baked then please do so. These recipes are just basic. You can change it to fit you and your family.

            Should I thaw and cook the shrimp first?

Nope! The shrimp has already been pre-cooked so none is needed until you are ready to make the dish. Same as thawing. There is no need to thaw before cooking.

            What do I serve this with?

There are options for serving this dish. As stated, it can be an appetizer, or you could use it for a main dish such as Buffalo Shrimp tacos, a shrimp wrap or cook up some Angel hair pasta and serve it together.
